Marine Solutions' operating environment

Wärtsilä Marine Solutions serves the marine and oil & gas industries. The main vessel segments covered in the marine industry are traditional merchant vessels, gas carriers, cruise & ferry, navy, and special vessels. In the oil & gas industry, Wärtsilä is active in serving offshore installations and vessels, as well as land-based gas installations.

General shipbuilding and shipping market drivers

Demand in the shipbuilding and shipping industries is mainly driven by developments within the global economy and the resulting impact on trade and transportation capacity requirements. The global economy also influences fuel prices, which in turn has both a direct and an indirect impact on the marine and oil & gas industries. The price, availability, and demand for fuel drives development in the oil & gas industry, while in the general shipping industry, fuel costs increase the demand for efficient vessels. Other factors, such as shipyard capacity, newbuild prices, decommissioning and scrapping, and interest and freight rates, also affect these industries. Global demand for new vessels drives Wärtsilä’s Marine Solutions business, in particular ships built for seaborne cargo transportation, offshore oil drilling, production and support, cruise and ferry services, and for naval use. Another important driver is the development of environmental regulations and their impact on the demand for optimised vessel efficiency, environmental solutions, and gas as a marine fuel.

Main drivers for Wärtsilä's Marine Solutions business

  • Developments in the global economy
  • Development of world trade and needed transportation capacity
  • Development of gas as an energy source
  • Development of oil and gas prices
  • Development of new offshore oil & gas fields and infrastructures
  • Environmental regulations
